Ana set for Seoul

Ana today announced her acceptance of a wild card into the Hansol Korea Open in Seoul, a $220,000 International tournament that takes place during 20-26 September.

It will be Ana's first visit to South Korea and the 22-year-old is very much looking forward to it.

"I am often asked what the best thing about being a professional tennis player is. I always say, 'competing on the court', but after that it is probably the opportunity to visit new places, and Korea is going to be a lot of fun, I'm sure."

After Seoul Ana will play Premier tournaments in Tokyo and Beijing.

"I like this new schedule: three tournaments in a row in Asia. There's still a lot to play for this season and it made a lot of sense to add Seoul to my schedule.

"I am grateful for this wild card and I really hope I can compete for the trophy."
